Donate

Our Closet relies on Clothing Donations, Financial Support, and Corporate Partnerships to sustain our operations.

Donate Clothes

Please place the items in plastic trash bags that tie at the top. If possible, please label the bags. For example, “Men’s Large/XL Pants” or “Girls’ clothes.” This makes it much easier for us to sort the items at our warehouse. Please know we DO NOT accept donations in cardboard boxes. Just reusable bags, trash bags or garment bags. Thank you. If you are in need of a Tax Receipt, please click HERE.

By appointment only. Please call 267-256-2179 to schedule.

Directions to warehouse:

If you are using a navigation device, please enter the 400 South State Road address and not our organization name, and please make sure you specify Springfield, PA.

We are in the Marple Crossroads Shopping Center in the old Anthem Institute building that is around the back of the center. When you make a right into the main entrance of the shopping center off of State Road (you’ll stay to the right to avoid entering the highway and follow the “Shopping Center” signs), you’ll make the first left after entering and then a right toward the AMC movie theatre. You’ll drive past the theatre and around the back of the DSW shoe store and to the right toward the empty parking lot around the back of the center. You can park there by the front doors to the building.

If you have any questions about a donation, or need to arrange a drop-off time, please contact us by email, at info@ourclosetpa.org or by phone at 267-256-2179.
